#AthletaEmbrace and Instagram

I’ve been wearing Athleta clothing almost as long as I’ve been practicing yoga. My first pair of Athleta shorts saw me through my first pregnancy, over 10 years ago, and since then I’ve added to my workout wardrobe with a range of cute and functional Athleta gear.

Sure, you can wear anything – as long as it moves and breathes – to practice yoga, but I find that wearing Athleta clothing makes me more comfortable both physically and mentally, enabling me to focus fully on the practice.

Athleta is running an Embrace the Yoga Challenge Instagram contest in conjunction with Satya Jewelry; six winners will receive a $200 Athleta gift card and an Ariel necklace by Satya! And all you have to do is submit a photo of yourself doing one of the poses they demonstrate in their tutorials!

Please visit my Instagram picture of my half moon pose and like it to help me win! Thank you!


Do you use Instagram? I LOVE Instagram. I post daily and enjoy looking at pictures from others. But there are a few things I don’t care so much to look at. In no particular order:
1. Half-eaten food. Don’t get me wrong, love food pics, just don’t want to see a half-eaten sandwich with teeth marks in it. Unappetizing!
2. Feet. Even pretty ones. Especially gross when a foot picture follows a food picture.
3. Cats. Sorry, there are just too many cats on Instagram. We need Catgram.
And, just to balance things out, a list of things I love to look at:
1. Nature.
2. Animals. Except cats. šŸ˜‰
3. Happy people. šŸ™‚
What are your Instagram likes/dislikes?


  1. Oh, what a cool challenge. I love your pose! I’m heading over to like it on Instagram… and I agree there are too many cats. šŸ™‚

      Danielle am I following you on Instagram? I’ll go look for you. I’ve tried hot yoga and have to admit I find the heat a real challenge. I don’t mind sweating but pouring with sweat is a different matter. But I know people who love it!

  3. You have been a loyal Athleta girl for so long. You deserve to win this.

    Your Instagram dislike list is so funny! I am so with you I can’t stand half eaten food and feet! disgusting! WHY?!
